Publisher Description

Engrossing and addictive, No.1 Bestseller Jeffrey Archer’s The Fourth Estate sees two newspaper barons in a battle for supremacy and power.

Two men who seem to have little in common aside from their desire to stay at the top of their game.

One, Richard Armstrong, born in poverty, survived the Second World War through luck, guts and being ruthless before buying a failing German newspaper while putting his competitors out of business.

The other, Keith Townsend, raised in wealth, took over his family’s business, his brilliance soon making him the most successful newspaper publisher in Australia.

Now their ambitions are about to collide as each find themselves threated by financial disaster. In a race to save their crumbling empires, each man must find a way to remain on top and take control of the greatest media conglomerate in the world.

Only one can triumph. Which one will it be?

With Archer’s trademark twists and turns, this is a powerful tale set in the newspaper world of wealth and corruption, desire and destruction.

The Fourth Estate

Simply one of the best fictional stories ive read! Particularly good background imaginative writing when compared to the current political issues surrounding the press, especially Murdoch!

Great un ,

Not great

I’ve read a majority of Archers books. I normally fall back on them when I can’t find anything else to read. Normally I find his books an interesting read that keeps my attention. Unfortunately the Fourth Estate did nothing of the sort. The normal twists that accompany a Archer novel weren’t there. There was no crossing over between characters like in others. Overall a disappointing read.
